La Salle Academy seeks to enroll young men and women who want to be educated in a Catholic, college preparatory secondary school.

Application Process

We are looking for qualified, enthusiastic, and creative students who are committed to their education and excited about being a part of our La Salle community. We use the following to assess a student’s qualification for acceptance:

  • Standardized Testing (HSPT)
  • Completed Application/Entrance Exam Form
  • Transcript and Teacher Recommendation
Applications should be submitted during the fall of the year preceding actual enrollment. Prospective transfer students’ applications are reviewed in March.  Completed applications and the $50 application fee may be completed online.

For applications received in the Admission Office by the Monday before Thanksgiving, letters confirming receipt of applications will be mailed to the applicants' homes the week of the exam.

Please note that the application form serves also as the registration form for the Entrance Exam.
